Would This Run FSX Well?
« on: April 26, 2015, 10:53:16 AM »
Bascially an Alienware laptop with these specs.

Intel® Core� i5-4210H Processor (Dual-Core, 3MB Cache, up to 3.5GHz w/ Turbo Boost)
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 965M with 2GB GDDR5
8GB DDR3L at 1600MHz (2 x 4G)
1TB 7.2k SATA 6Gb/s

Believe it or not google doesn't turn up a lot on the matter. Any opinions will be valued

Dual Core is the lowest spec recommended to run FSX. But as FSX is pretty much CPU intense I'd recommend at least a Quad Core. At least you have a good (mobile) GPU and enough RAM.
I think as long as you don't overload FSX with too many AI aircrafts and addons, it should run pretty well.

But you only can really tell, when you simply install FSX and try yourself how far you can max out your system.  ;)

I have a similar setup, and I just landed at LAX at dusk with most scenery settings maxed out, and I kept good frame rates all the way.

I suggest you get AI Cull (freeware, can be found at Avsim). It does wonders for performance.
